Jamie Bell as Gwayne Hightower
Name: Gwayne Hightower
Faction: The Reach
Organization: House Hightower
Occupation: Acting Lord of Oldtown/Lord Commander of the City Watch
Rank: Major Noble Lord
Age: Jul 27 93 (27)


Gwayne is a man, roughly 27 years old, of Hightower Westerosi heritage. Bearing a fair skin tone and standing at 5'7" weighing in around 150 pounds in an overall athletic body type. Short dark chestnut auburn hair is done in a swept back style framing an oval shaped face. Deep set, hooded blue-gray eyes are set to either side of his wide, strong nose. Below that nose is a thin set of lips. The rest of his oval shaped face is accented in sloping cheeks, a round at the corners jaw that comes to a soft chin. Gwayne bears a few scars, from living day to day as a knight brings. Gwayne smells of woody cologne. When they speak the tones and accent of Oldtown can be detected.

At the moment Gwayne is going for a confident style. He is wearing shirt dark scarlet raw silk above a grey suede leather trousers with dark grey shark skin boots completing the look.


Gwayne is the fourth of seven children of Otto and Annette Hightower nee Tully. Annette and Otto were not married for love, but the arrangement was sound and they are one of Westeros' most influential and powerful couples of their generation. Otto became Hand of the King some time before he made arrangements for his eldest daughter, Gwayne's big sister to be wed to the recently Widowed King. It is a great time for the Hightowers but even at a very young age Gwayne seemed to understand that with great power comes great enemies and being so far from inheritance, he took it upon himself to be the one that made sure that whatever needed to be done got done, for the good of his family.

His eldest brother and Heir of Hightower had to remain clean and virtuous if the people were to trust and look up to him. But Gwayne isn't afraid to get his hands dirty if he believes in the end game. Being an anointed knight helps to diffuse suspicion away from Gwayne's way of dealing with problems in his city. He deals a great amount of time with the smallfolk. Some love him, some fear him. But so long as it's the good folk doing the loving and the criminals and hoodlums doing the fearing Gwayne feels wholy justified for his less than above board tactics. He believes in the Knight's Code, but he also believes in doing what must be done to preserve a way of life.
